In the visual cortex, information is transferred from one area to the next by means of feedforward connections. These connections shape the receptive field properties of neurons in subsequent visual areas. Horizontal and feedback connections modulate this neuronal activity, resulting in the phenomenon of contextual modulation. In area V1, where receptive field properties reflect only low level processing, contextual modulation can be observed that represents fully evaluated perceptual saliency… CONTINUE READING
